    On all the threads about what to wear at uni everyone seems to say wear what you are comfortable in. For me i like a pair of tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt or maybe a hoodie and if im not going out anywhere special a pair of trainers.

    If someone was to wear these types of clothes at uni would they get known as 'the chav'?

    LOL this and for the record OP I think anyone who regularly wears sportswear when they don't intend on playing any sport is a bit chavvy. If you feel comfortable though it doesn't matter what I or anybody else thinks.

    wear what you are comfortable in, some people turn up to lecturs in tracksuit bottoms or jeans, some in shorts, your not on a fashion show :p:
    some people will turn up looking like they have just rolled out of bed, which they would have, i wear t-shirts and hoodie in uni, cos well i like them and well comfortable in them, a chav is a bit more then the cloths they wear

    Simply switching the trackies for some jeans would solve your problem pretty quickly

    If you really want to wear sportswear, then at the very least wear a rugby top, join the rugger team and learn how to drink a yard without puking. I am sure that you will be able to manage the transition from 'chav' to 'rugger player' with only the minimum effort, as after all the only real difference tends to be that chavs do their fighting whilst drunk, whilst rugby players do their drinking after fighting*...


    *Lets be honest, rugby matches are just basically one big fight that happens to have a set of rules and a ball involved...

    I would'nt think your a chav. Tracksuit bottoms and hoodies are just comfortable clothes and if thats what you normally wear, i don't see why you should have to change your style for uni.

    Tracksuit bottoms and a hoody might look a bit stereotypically 'chav'. But I wouldn't think someone in a hoody and jeans was a chav, or tracksuit bottoms and a T-Shirt, etc.

    Though don't worry what anyone thinks if that's what you want to wear. You wouldn't be 'THE chav', I'm sure there are plenty who wear those things. :P

    Wear whatever you damn well want to wear. If anyone accuses you of being a chav, head-butt them.

    defining somebody negatively as a chav by clothes/accent/mannerisms is simply neo classism.

    its usually dull minded middle class kids or their equally dim witted parents unable to fathom how poor people can have a culture of their own, that is distinct from that of the middle classes.

    hopefully u get in a good uni where no amount of pushy parenting is an adequate substitute for intellect and talent, where no1 really cares what ur wearing or where ur from.

    Okay, this depends if you want to project a certain image to other people. If you want to project a "chav" image, wear the trackies and trainers. If you want to project a "goth" or "alternative" image, wear black, get dreads, do whatever.

    If you don't care what you look like to other people, wear whatever is comfortable. It all depends which you put first - comfort or image. Unlike school or sixth form, at uni, you'll find most people opt for comfort, specially in the mornings. Usually a university hoodie is my standard hangover, comfy outfit for winter lectures. But sometimes you even find some campus-dwelling first years in their pyjamas or whatever they wore in bed, especially if it's an early start! : )

    I say wear what ever you like - for crying out loud there are girls out there that turn up in their pj bottoms (and think they are really cool for doing so). As in, they weren't wearing them in bed -they have pyjama bottoms they ONLY wear to lectures!!! COME ON!!!!
